You'll never have to worry about her taking your jobs now, America

The New Cruelty marches on, keeping America safe from the scourge of criminal illegal aliens who want to kill us all, like 10-year-old Rosamaria Hernandez, who has cerebral palsy and was brought to the USA illegally when she was 3 months old. Rosamaria, who lives in Laredo, Texas, was nabbed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at 2 a.m. Tuesday when an ambulance sneakily tried to get her to a hospital for emergency gallbladder surgery. When the ambulance reached a Border Patrol checkpoint, agents stopped it, discovered the girl was in the country illegally, and then very mercifully spared her a beatdown, because Donald Trump has such great heart.

After that, the agents followed the ambulance to Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi, where they stayed outside the operating room and then the recovery room the entire time, then arrested Rosamaria the moment she was released. She was accompanied by a cousin, Aurora Cantu, who is a US citizen. Here's Rosa Maria in the hospital, probably planning to join MS 13 and begin a crime spree:

Upon release, Rosamaria was taken to a San Antonio detention facility for migrant children who arrive in the US without their parents, despite her doctors' recommendation she be released to her parents. Rosamaria's parents are also undocumented, so they don't count, and for now they're staying in Laredo, 150 miles away from where their daughter is being held.

The Washington Post has this account of the brave federal agents' apprehension of the dangerous fugitive from justice, who has no respect for US immigration law (largely because, according to her teachers and doctors, her mental abilities are equivalent to those of a four- or five-year-old):

When her doctors said she could go home, Rosa Maria took two steps out of her hospital room, and, upon seeing the unfamiliar faces — more Border Patrol agents and lawyers — she wanted to go back inside, said the family’s attorney, Leticia Gonzalez.

It's unclear whether the Border Patrol officers chanted USA! USA! USA! as they took the small violator of American sovereignty into custody.

According to her cousin who was with her, the agents initially tried to deport Rosamaria before she even reached the hospital in Corpus Christi, and

tried to persuade the family to agree to have the girl transferred to a Mexican hospital, pressing the family to sign a voluntary departure form for her. They declined to do so.

Yes, this is the United States of America in 2017.

Get ready for anti-immigration wingnuts to seize on the criminal actions of Rosamaria's mother 10 years ago, when she brought her daughter here just to leech off the U.S. taxpayer:

Felipa de la Cruz, 39, said in an interview that her family had moved to Texas from Nuevo Laredo, the city in Mexico just across the border from Laredo, when her daughter was still an infant, hoping to get better treatment for her cerebral palsy.

They had not been able to afford her therapies in Mexico, she said, but in Texas, Medicaid paid for her daughter’s treatment, which included home visits from therapists.

“I’m a mother. All I wanted was for her to get the surgery that she needed,” Ms. de la Cruz said. “It never crossed my mind that any of what is happening right now could happen. When you’re a mother, all you care about is your child.”

Thank goodness Donald Trump only cares about beautiful Syrian babies, or that might move him to rethink his goal of deporting all the illegals, compassionately of course.

For some reason, lawmakers, activists, and attorneys seem to think there might be something wrong with nabbing Messican kids with severe disabilities and fast-tracking them for deportation. Democratic Congressman Henry Cuellar, whose district includes Laredo, called on ICE to release Rosamaria to her family:

“I understand that C.B.P. has a tremendous duty to protect our nation,” he said in a statement, referring to Customs and Border Protection, “but we should be devoting our resources and focus on bigger threats.”

Priscilla Martinez, an activist with the Workers Defense Action Fund, said,

The fact that they spent so much time and resources to follow this girl, to treat her like she was the highest-priority criminal that ever walked on this earth — the way they’re treating her is just beyond what a 10-year-old special needs child should be treated

A spokesperson for CPB, Dan Hetlage, told NPR the agency is Just Following Orders:

"The agent is wrong if he lets her go. We don't have the discretion. It's not a traffic ticket. We follow the letter of the law," he said.

"It's frustrating for us," he continued, "I'm a human being. The agents are trying to do their job as humanely as possible."

Now that Team Trump is going after sick kids, people in the country illegally will have to think carefully before undertaking any criminal activity like taking their sick children to the hospital while brown, since that could result in the whole family being deported. The family's attorney, Leticia Gonzalez, told the Washington Post that since Rosamaria's family lived south of the highway checkpoint near Corpus Christi, the girl had never before had to go anywhere near it.

It truly is morning in America again, isn't it? Your papers, please.

Last week, Yr Dok Zoom talked a little bit about his damn dissertation, which looked at "Wabbit Literacy," the weird thing where we sometimes learn about the world from parodies and jokes long before we ever encounter the original stuff -- like learning about opera from cartoons. More than one person in the comments (which Wonkette does not allow and yet, like life, you find a way) mentioned they were disappointed, as kids, to learn that while roadrunners are real birds, the actual critter looks nothing like this:

Which is not to say that real roadrunners are the least bit disappointing, as animals go, because they're freaking incredible. Yes, even if they don't actually leave lines of flame down the center line of desert highways and go "Meep! Meep!" But they can sprint up to 20 miles per hour, which is faster than you, albeit slower than a real coyote's top speed. Also, yes, real coyotes are among the predators what eat roadrunners, which is why the wily birds adopted the evolutionary strategy of running right through fake tunnels coyotes paint on the sides of mountains.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."
